$250 for Lack of Aftercare Following Stroke

$250 for lack of aftercare following stroke

On February 8, 1996, while incarcerated at the WSP, Frederick Aylward suffered a stroke. The stroke severely limited Mr. Aylward's mobility. Following the stroke, WSP medical staff refused to provide physical therapy to assist Mr. Falcone in attempting to recover some of his lost mobility and, as a result, he is now permanently disabled.

Mr. Aylward filed a tort claim with the Division of Risk Management, alleging medical neglect. The claim was settled for $250. Mr. Aylward was not represented by counsel. See: Matter of Aylward, Tort Claim No. 31033765-01 (Nov. 30, 1999).
